I went to Ft. Louisburg on Cape Breton. (I think) It is a French fort that has been restored and has people in period costume that work there. Quite interesting. At Meat Cove, the wind was up and fierce. It destroyed my tent that night and I didn't get any sleep. The view was worth it, though. As for taking a ferry back, I only took one day to ride from the border of NS/New Brunswick to north west of Portsmith, New Hampshire. Long day, I will admit, but I was in a hurry to get there. I missed seeing much of Maine in the process. I may go back to Maine after Cro-Mag's campout in September. If you can ride around the Gaspe, I would vote for that. I really liked it. Have fun and take pics. Post them here.
